Where might I linger this week? I’ll be getting myself talked about! I believe I promised you some English windows. Now, how to present them?
The glass-panelled arched ceiling of Malt Cross Cafe in Nottingham
You know I spent the weekend in Nottingham? The above was the venue for the book launch of “Steampunk Apothecary”. If you want to see some of the antics, have a look at An extraordinary, but delicious, affair.
The Malt Cross Cafe is an historic grade 2 listed building and we were fortunate to have the use of the upper gallery. Below, there’s a bar which sells delicious savouries.
Nottingham isn’t short on interesting venues, and windows.
Don’t you love the light through this window in Nottingham’s exquisite Newstead Abbey?
The previous weekend I was in Newcastle-on-Tyne and found myself very taken with these windows. I think the building is currently being used just for office space, but at least it’s still there in all its glory.
What do you think?
The prettiest windows I’ve seen in a while
You can tell I like them!
England’s towns and cities have some of the loveliest windows you’ll ever see.
The Cambridge colleges are the equal of any in the world
The beautiful “Backs” in Cambridge
Reflecting windows in the heart of the shopping centre on Grainger St., Newcastle
English charm and very industrious, too. Whitby, of course.
The atmosphere in Whitby’s St. Mary’s is so serene, despite the Dracula connection
But for Tudor style you can’t beat York
While these filigree beauties at Whitby Abbey are simply timeless
Did you stroll through my galleries? We really must stop meeting like this. It’s getting to be a habit.
So, what do you think? Can England take on Poland and Portugal in the windows challenge? Thanks Dawn for providing me with a little more fun this rain-soaked English day.
Don’t forget to check out the other Lingering Windows entries, and maybe participate?
